Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again

Och!!

We did remember to leap ahead an hour, though, really, why do we do this??

The sky is beginning to fill with life and sound. Red wing blackbirds, grackles, returning geese. Along with longer light, these are promising signs of the season to come.

Have made it to book 6 of the Outlander series, spoiling my plan to read one book a month of the 7-book series. To be ready for Book 8, whenever it comes out at the end of this year. Unfortunately, I once again have become addicted to the tale of Scottish warriors, mysterious stone circles and 18th century Europe & the Colonies and the eve of the American Revolution (and really well-written fabulous sex scenes; ooh, did I write that?!). I do love these books.

Tuesday March 12th is my husband's surgery and it can't come soon enough. He has been most unwell this past week; it's been a rough time for us all.

I am thinking about Ostara next week. We Wiccan/Pagans celebrate the Spring Equinox with vigor. Time to renew, refresh and plan for the Warmth and Light of this spoke of the Wheel of the Year.

Wish us luck tomorrow at the hospital. I will let you all know how my dear fellow fares.

I love love love Outlander! I'm reading book 1 again. Some chapters are hard to read because I just can't stand Jamie going back to prison and getting hurt. I love these characters too much. lol

I hope your hubby feels better SOON.

Be safe - both of you. The whole springing ahead thing is (after less than two days) making me nuts. I like for the sun to go down at a reasonble hour.

Have I said this before? I hate daylight savings... messes up with your sleep schedule and it is just horrible.

Keeping fingers, toes and eyes crossed for your husband's surgery. He will feel better soon, I am sure of it! Send spring here please, I could do with a few geese honking overhead....I am in the midst of a late winter cranky!

I wish your husband the best of luck with his surgery tomorrow. And I bet he did his cleanse today, didn't he? That's an ordeal in and of itself! I speak from experience, several times over.

Pink candles with wee green bows at the ready...decorating eggs this weekend. This next year the Great Scot will be embroidering a tree of life for me; yup, he does lovely freehand embroidery.

My thoughts are with you and your husband and I hope for the very best possible outcome!

Diana Gabaldon is a fabulous author, I've gotten my mother, stepfather and daughter all hooked on her Outlander series!
